Buses are clearly a very economical mode of transportation that has become nearly essential today, particularly in the transport of children. At the same time, history has shown that buses-along with other larger vehicles-are more prone to turn-overs and can cause incredible amounts of damage when involved in accidents. The SSCAC bus involved in this accident was owed by the privately owned SSCAC, a non-profit on the South Shore to aid low-income individuals.
